Man's Pants Catch Fire From E-cigarette


A man has been hospitalized in Kentucky after his e-cigarette exploded in his pocket. A gas station store security camera caught the exact moment the man's pants caught fire. The local man, Josh Hamilton, had just walked up to the counter when he reached into his pocket to pay. The e-cigarette explosion looked like a firework going off, and the pants are instantly engulfed in flames. Hamilton ran outside, but thankfully, the quick thinking cashier followed him with a fire extinguisher.

  • 'Halt and Catch Fire' Episode 2: Mutiny In a Man's World

    In the second episode of Halt and Catch Fire’s new season — cheekily titled “New Coke” — Donna and Cameron must battle sexist investors, erratic coders and even a scheming hacker living in an unassuming suburban home. This, just to keep Mutiny afloat. The pair’s online gaming company is growing at a rapid rate, leaving the women scrambling to build out their platforms and find new capital. Investors take meetings, but question the consumer demand for online gaming (only 10% of households had computers) and also question whether Donna and Cam can manage a company — they worry that since they are women, eventual motherhood will make them unreliable leaders, a concern that deeply offends both.
